                           DETAILED INFORMATION

I. DESCRIPTION (From cve.mitre.org)
   
    CVE-2010-5107

    The default configuration of OpenSSH through 6.1 enforces a fixed time 
    limit between establishing a TCP connection and completing a login, which 
    makes it easier for remote attackers to cause a denial of service  
    (connection-slot exhaustion) by periodically making many new TCP 
    connections.

II. CVSS

    CVSS Base Score: 5.0
    CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/82781 for the
    current score
    CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
    CVSS String: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

III. PLATFORM VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

    To determine if your system is vulnerable, execute the following
    command:

    lslpp -L openssh.base.server

    The following fileset levels are vulnerable:

    AIX: 7.1, 6.1, 5.3: all versions less than or equal to 6.1.6101 
    VIOS: 7.1, 6.1, 5.3: all versions less than or equal to 6.1.6101 

IV. FIXES

    A fix is available, and it can be downloaded from:

    https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=aixbp

    To extract the fixes from the tar file:

    zcat OpenSSH_6.0.0.6102.tar.Z | tar xvf -

    IMPORTANT: If possible, it is recommended that a mksysb backup
    of the system be created.  Verify it is both bootable and
    readable before proceeding.

    To preview the fix installation:

    installp -apYd . OpenSSH_6.0.0.6102

    To install the fix package:

    installp -aXYd . OpenSSH_6.0.0.6102
